Historical Note

For more than 200 years, DuPont has brought world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace through innovative products, materials and services. Its market-driven innovation introduces thousands of new products and patent applications every year, serving markets as diverse as agriculture, nutrition, electronics and communications, safety and protection, home and construction, transportation and apparel.

The DuPont executive team holds top-line responsibility for driving DuPont’s vision and ensuring that its core values are upheld across the company. For more than 200 years, DuPont leaders have guided the company through great change, continually renewing its position as a leader in market-driven science and innovation. DuPont leadership includes its Board of Directors, corporate executives and regional and functional leaders who carry responsibilities for realizing DuPont’s mission to create shareholder and societal value, while reducing its environmental footprint.

Many of these portraits were originally framed and hung in the DuPont Company's Corporate Headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware.
